Scrapbookers have been talking about "smash" books. It's a free form type of scrapbook where they put anything and everything they want to keep.

Often a Moleskin notebook is used (but you can use anything you'd like). I thought it would be fun to start one to put little sketches of outfits i see that I like, fabric swatches, patterns I want to try, etc.

Here's the commercial video that got me thinking about how cool this would be for sewing:

Kinda like an inspiration board, only in a book!

I think it was GLButterfly (I might be wrong) that pointed me out to Fashionary. It works the same way, but you have A LOT of information at your fingertips specifically for sewing and fashion design.

Nope, it wasn't me, but thanks for the mention. LOL

My guess would be Maggie, cause that's who came to mind when I read your post.

Whoever it was, I need to thank them. It's been a pretty awesome tool.

Smash books - kind of like Pinterest, but "old school". Everything old is new againI'm not familiar with fashionary, but it sounds good. I'll have to check it out.
